Week 14 Streaming DSTs

If you are one of those hooligans who streams defenses each week, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be looking for 50% rostered or less in Yahoo! Leagues.

Denver Broncos (Den, 46%) vs. Det

The Broncos were dropped in many leagues due to their matchup with Kansas City. They ended up holding their own against Patrick Mahomes, keeping the Chiefs to just 16 PA. They’ve been a top-5 defense this season, allowing just 18.2 points per game with 28 sacks and 11 INTs. This week, they’re home and facing a bottom-5 offense in Detroit. The Lions average just 16.9 points per game and allow 2.5 sacks per game.

Green Bay Packers (GB, 36%) vs. Chi

The Packers D is 5th in points allowed and 7th in yards allowed, averaging 2.4 sacks and 1 INT per game so far. Fresh off their bye, they welcome the Bears to Lambeau Field. Chicago gives up the 6th-most FPG to DSTs, averaging 15.2 points per game and allowing a league-high 3.4 sacks per game. Green Bay is a 13-point favorite with Vegas expecting the Bears to muster just 15 points. Double-digit leads tend to amp up sack and turnover opportunities.

New Orleans Saints (NO, 25%) @ NYJ

New Orleans has lived in the top-10 for DST scoring all season. Their 26 sacks are about average, but their 14 INTs are tied for 5th-most. They also have 2 blocked kicks. While we usually aim for whoever is playing the Jets, we really like good defenses going against the Jets. Gang Green produces the 3rd-most FPG to DSTs.
